Asleep at a window, awake by the door
I was searching for something I was trying to ignore
The world has such patience, I think I do too
I don’t like to use it but I know that you do

Savour your breath, this path just leads to death
Strapped inside, no room to hide
It’s a cryin’ shame and no one’s to blame
Coupled with doubt and what’s this all about?
When did you go out?

Sick and tired of waiting for nothing at all
I wish I could remember what it is that I want
Gazed up at a painting, he gazed right back
Can’t recall why he’s sitting, no clue why he’s so relaxed

Faces compare, all look and glare
Hate in my veins please no more rain
Nothing to see, nothing indeed
Race is all done, judged too fit to run
When did you go out?

A prisoner still, guess I’ll take a pill
You’re flying away, just install my chains
You over there so full of despair
Stuck in behind another wall in my mind
When did you go out?
